When we are not at peace with our past, it is because we are holding onto some unforgiving thoughts. We have been programmed by the ego to judge our past and those from it, God’s creations, as deficient in one form or another. When in this mindset, do not despair. For we can only punish ourselves with our own thinking for so long before we start to look for a better way. At some point, we will understand and be grateful to our past for being our greatest teacher. We will see that we no longer need to buy into fairy tales as real, or participate in their judgment-centered, childish games. At some point, we will see that our past and everyone from it has, in their own unique ways, helped us become the wiser, more self-aware, loving and compassionate beings that we currently are.
Today, when judgmental thoughts come knocking on our mind’s door, let us use our past experiences to recall that such thoughts have never delivered the peace we want. With this knowledge and understanding at hand, let us decline their entrance into our mind and kingdom. A mind that is awake offers gratitude to its past, and to those who were a part it. A mind that is not yet awake uses judgment to define and relate to its past and those who were a part of it. Let us recall that we would not be who we are today without our past. Let our present-self recognize this, and offer our past-self gratitude for the courage and determination that we had to get to where we are now. Then let us acknowledge that one day our future-self will feel this same gratitude toward our present self – for who we are and what we do now.
All glory to God.
Peace, Health, Happiness, Love, Laughter, and Light.
